• Premier witnesses signing of Memorandum of Understanding between Pilbara Ports Authority and Japan’s Port of Himeji
  • MOU to help foster collaboration and explore opportunities in the renewable energy supply chain

Premier Mark McGowan has today witnessed the signing of a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to boost renewable energy trade opportunities between Western Australia and Japan.

The MOU between Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) and the Port of Himeji will support cooperation and knowledge exchange between the two ports on renewable energy and net zero carbon emission initiatives.

The Port of Himeji, located in the western part of Japan, has strong trade relationships with Western Australia, importing Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), iron ore, oil, and salt from Pilbara ports.

Premier McGowan is visiting Japan as part of a State Government mission to drive investment into WA’s future industries.

While in Japan, a delegation from the PPA will tour the Harima coastal area to learn about its carbon neutral port plan.
